Injectable Oxygen Keeps People Alive Without Breathing

Scientists have made a breakthrough that could save patient’s lives and open up the possibilities for underwater exploration.

A team at Boston Children’s Hospital have invented a micro-particle that can be injected into your bloodstream to oxygenate your blood – without any help being required from your lungs.

The particles are able to keep a patient alive for up to 30 minutes after respiratory failure – which is normally enough time to prevent a heart attack or brain damage due to oxygen deprivation.
